I asked this a year or so ago with not much response. Any experience with Z-wings instead of cannon balls? Anybody tried high speed planers from their downriggers? Is it too much pressure on a rodholder mounted downrigger? Also has anyone switched to braid as a downrigger line? What size braid works? How is that working for you?

I never used z wings but I used the salty dog planners. I use 400 pound mono for the planners tied to a cleat and simply sent the line down with a rubber band and a clip like the ones on a rigger............when the fish hits the band breaks and you fight the fish and the planner stays down and most of the time out of the way/////////////

I got a couple of the planer kits from Boaters World. Everything needed is included to run off a cleat. Worked pretty well last year. I got two one each with different color line so if one hits you can just yell 'yellow planer' or 'blue planer' if you're not the one near the rod.
